The Furious Bongos Play Zappa

Friday, May. 17 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)

Classic RockIndie/Alt


The Furious Bongos play the music of Frank Zappa, featuring musicians who have worked alongside heavyweights like Yo Yo Ma, Mick Fleetwood, Robert Fripp, and Les Paul.  Recently added to the line-up is Arthur Barrow (Frank Zappa band alumnus) on keyboards, Marcus Rezak (Shred Is Dead) on guitar, and vocalist Corey Crider (LA Philharmonic).

This isn't strictly a tribute project - with unique arrangements you won't hear anywhere else, a biting sense of humor, and plenty of eyebrows, The Furious Bongos sound less like a cover band, and more like a band that Frank might maybe possibly have assembled himself.

Box Office open at 4pm ET
Starts 8:00pm, doors open 7:00pm
